Se si paragonano i lobi delle orecchie dei masai così allungati dai pesanti orecchini, i colli lunghissimi delle donne-giraffa africane, gli ossi nel naso dei papuani e i tatuaggi dalla vita fino alle ginocchia dei samoani, le depilazioni delle donne europee sono una ben scarsa espressione di una ricerca estetica.

Molto presto alle bambine viene insegnato a valorizzarsi consistent with le proprie conoscenze, in line with l'abilità nel confezionare panieri o sacchi mortuari. Esse non portano collane e non usano trucchi.»

Baltasar Lopes schuf mit Chiquinho eines der frühesten Werke afro-portugiesischer Literatur, in denen die kulturellen und geographischen Besonderheiten des Landes mit Akteuren und Handlung zu einem eigenständigen Ganzen verschmelzen. Die Entscheidung des Titelhelden, sein Land zu verlassen und sein Glück jenseits des Atlantiks zu versuchen, ist auch heute noch paradigmatisch für die Lebenswirklichkeit in der ehemaligen portugiesischen Kolonie, deren Bevölkerungsmehrheit fernab ihrer Heimat (in Portugal, Holland und den united states …) lebt. Chiquinhos Entwicklungsgeschichte ist geprägt vom Konflikt zwischen kultureller Identität, ökonomischen Notwendigkeiten und dem Verschwinden traditioneller Lebensweise, der das Grundproblem aller Migrantenschicksale darstellt: gehen zu müssen, obwohl guy bleiben will; bleiben zu müssen, obwohl guy gehen will.
